What a great “first day!” It was fun to see the smiles of our students, teachers, administrators, and families. It’s going to be a great year at LCS! As we prepare for the yeah ahead, here are a few helpful pieces of information for new families and a reminder for families who may need a refresher:
If you’re wanting athletic schedule information for games, visit www.LCSCougars.com. Our full slate of games are located on that site for each sport. To add a team-specific calendar to your personal calendar (including practices and games), visit https://www.lenawee.org/team-calendars/.
If you want scores and updates on athletics, follow us on Twitter at www.twitter.com/lcscougars. Due to the number of contests we have in the year, we aren’t able to cover every game. If you’re at a game and don’t see us covering it on Twitter, tag us with @lcscougars and tell us how it’s going! #GoCougars!
If you’re looking for fan gear, check out our online gear store at www.CougarsShop.com for a huge selection of LCS clothing and gear. We also offer a “Game Day” tee shirt at Homecoming (September). Some of our local print shops also carry a limited selection of items or can create gear for you. Ask in the office for authorized print shops who carry our official logos. Our school colors are royal blue, white, and red, so you’ll be right at home wearing those colors at games and events.
School News and Information:
Our website (https://www.lenawee.org) is a valuable source of information. At the top of the home page, you’ll see “Parent Information,” “Student Information,” and “Calendar.” You can find lunch schedules, school calendar, PE clothing, and links to most of the sites that our students need to complete coursework. If you can’t locate the specific information you need on those pages, send us a note in Messenger. We do our best to direct you to the right source of information.
New families – be sure and contact your “connector parent” if you need help finding something. We’re all here to help you have a great experience and we know it can be tough “learning the ropes.” Be sure and watch your email! Elementary and Secondary office staff publish a weekly email newsletter with a lot of valuable information. Keep an eye out for notes from Julie Fischer (Elementary) and Susan Fuss (Secondary). Elementary parents should also keep an eye out for classroom newsletters from your child’s teacher. These communications are very important and fun to read! Our teachers are available via email to answer class-specific questions, so contact them when you need help. Please provide them with at least 24-hours to respond.
Our Facebook page is a great place to celebrate the achievements of our students and school groups. We celebrate the “big things” here and focus mainly on communicating with our parents and families. You’ll fine photos, videos, and posts about a lot of our events on campus. We are limited in how many things we can cover, but it doesn’t mean we don’t care about all of our activities. If you have a talent in photography or video, let us know if you’d like to help tell visual stories of our many adventures.
We have a few Facebook groups setup that are sport-specific or program-specific, so keep an eye out for those or search for any that might be of interest to you. If you start a group, let us know! We’d love to help.
On our Instagram page (www.instagram.com/lcscougars), we communicate similar things to our Facebook page, and engage more with our students and alumni as they share their experiences. Some of our alumni and students also hang out on Twitter, so we spend some time there too. Tag us in your Twitter and Instagram posts with @lcscougars. We love to hear from you and celebrate your life adventures.
Wow, that is a lot of information! To those who have made it this far, pat yourselves on the back. You’re up to speed and ready to stay connected with us as we journey together! Thanks again for partnering with LCS in the education of your child(ren). We are excited for the adventures that await!
